and then it ends up toppling the head of the cia? >> cyber security is a huge problem. if someone is hacking into the drergt of the cia, you need to know that. general petraeus, who is the director of the cia, and others have questioned about his e-mail account. the fbi is going to look into that, and they're going to try to determine is something unauthorized happening here? now, they stumbled upon something totally different, but to your question, no, i don't feel badly if the fbi is going to make sure that director of the cia is not being hacked into in an unauthorized fashion. >> petraeus, they had found -- they stumbled across the petraeus issue when she complained there was no mention of petraeus. what surprises me is that these people are still sending emails. >> yeah. >> that goes to judgment. if these emails are threatening, i'm want concerned that the fbi has the capacity to make a base-line judgment, is this a real problem that might do damage to this woman and, therefore, we ought to at least do a preliminary investigation? i mean, think more and more crimes that have been person

his coverage including affair that prompted his resignation as cia director. joining me is thomas ricks. tom, welcome. >> thank you. >> based on this book, the generals, one of them is general petraeus. you had one earlier called "the gamble." fair to say i think you're an admirer of petraeus? >> yes, and i remain so. >> and what's it like working with him in terms of his working with the press? >> you need to use the media to get your views out, that it's a responsibility of a general to explain to the american people what you're doing with their money and their children in some war overseas, and so he engaged and he use thad megaphone to explain this is what i'm doing, this is what i'm trying to do. >> that's an interesting verb," use" the media. some would see that as manipulating the media. >> i think he did that too. so did dwight eisenhower, explaining it to people, routinely holding press conferences, talking to reporters. >> how much of that courtship and exchange of e-mails and journali journalism, has that affected everything more than he might have gotten otherwise? >>
overseas -- the cia also has the responsibility for targeting individuals overseas. some say to let the department of defense run any military operations when using drones for strikes. host: "the new york times" says with 2500 people killed by the cia and military since mr. obama took office, the administration is still pushing to make the rules formal and resolve a disagreement about when legal action is justified. mr. obama and his advisers are still debating whether remote- controlled killing should be a measure of last resort. who comes down on what side of the issue? who do we see arguing one way or the other? guest: both sides have a stake in this. politicians love this weapon system. it is easy to use politically. we do not see the bad results often right away. we see the good results. we see a terrorist attack or information -- information attacked. the concern is the low back. if we're attacking civilians in pakistan, it is creating a generation of people who hate the united states going forward. fundamentally, we are so far ahead with this technology in the world that this

'll be right back. >> a fall from grace for the now former head of the c.i.a., general david petraeus, resigning after an fbi investigation unearthed an extramarital affair. the investigation starting after a complaint that his biographer, paula broadwell, was sending harassing e-mails to a state-department employee, who was a friend of the petraeus family. broadwell spent a year with petraeus in afghanistan, interviewing him for his biography. petraeus' resignation coming days before he was scheduled to testify before the senate intelligence committee about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. before taking the helm of the c.i.a. in september of 2011, the retired four-star general commanded forces in iraq and afghanistan. thousands in new york and new jersey displaced and still without power weeks after super storm sandy hit the northeast. secretary of homeland security janet napolitano visiting staten island, new york, for the second time to see the recovery process. >> first thing's first -- food, shelter, clothing for people who need it, assistance w
attacks in libya that killed chris stephens and three other americans and repeated the information the cia provided at the time. >> susan rice should have known better. if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she has a lot of explaining to do. >> if appointed clears her of wrong doing besides not being very bright. i would do everything in my power from her being the united states secretary of state. >> i suppose i understand the republicans feel the administration hasn't paid a high political price for the benghazi attack. rice's performance on a few sunday shows should disqualify her. the president addressed this after he was reelected. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to hurt her reputation is outrageous. >> the day before thanksgiving, susan rice spoke up in defense of herself. >> when discussing the attac
and planned as terrorism attacks, and then came his resignation from the cia. the new york times put this piece out, a phony hero for a phony war, lucien trustcot, and then david petraeus in the iraq and afghanistan conflicts, no matter how good he looked in his biographer-mistress's book, it doesn't make up for the fact that we failed to conquer countries we invaded and ended up occupying undefeated nations. >> that's an attack on petraeus and salute from slate magazine, a book coming out called the insurgent, spent a lot of time with patz and questions and problems with him, but on the other hand, trustcot's piece was over the top. david petraeus was not in charge of invading iraq, he was in charge of turning around a situation that was bad and he gets no credit for that. >> jon: there's more news watch to come. if you see something that feel if you see something that feel shows evidence ofif we want to e our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like inv
